Ben and I are snuggled up in the house today celebrating our miniature Christmas before we head south to spend time (and real-Christmas) with his family. It's pouring rain out, but we're laying low in anticipation of the Nutcracker by the Portland Ballet later this evening. We opened up Christmas presents this morning and have been watching Christmas movies and drinking some Oregon brews, underneath the blankets as we watch the rain fall outside. We then have a load of packing up to do before our three-day trip that includes the cat and everyone's Christmas presents, phew! We're so lucky to be in Portland now and facing a two hour drive instead of the five hour drive it used to be from Tacoma.
Hope you all have happy holidays and safe trips ahead!
